Outlast 2 Confirmed, New Characters But Same Universe

No where is safe as the sequel explores new ideas and themes.

Posted By | On 24th, Oct. 2014 Under News


Red Barrels’ Outlast was and arguably still is the best survival horror game available. Given the critical acclaim and success, it only makes sense that Outlast 2 would happen and co-founder Philippe Morin has confirmed as much while speaking to Bloody Disgusting.

“After shipping the XB1 version of Outlast, we took some time to analyze our situation and we quickly realized we had at least another horror game in us. So, yes, we are working on Outlast 2.”

“We might go back to Mount Massive Asylum one day, but for now we have new ideas and themes we’d like to explore and we think we’re cooking up something special.” It is confirmed that Outlast 2 will be taking place in the same universe as the original game.

“We’re still a small indie studio (12 people), so we’ll need a little bit of time to ship our next game, but hopefully it will be worth it.”

This means we’re going to have to wait for quite a while regarding story and gameplay details. “Part of the fun of playing a horror game is the sense of discovery and progressively understanding ‘wtf’ is going on. So, I’d rather not say too much at this point.”

Thoughts? Let us know in the comments.

    Fantastic news! I enjoyed outlast so much and wanted to support this studio so I own outlast on PC, I also own it on both Xbox one and ps4 AND I bought the dlc on Xbox one and ps4 lol.

    Yes that is crazy but I firmly believe you vote with your wallet and I wanted more outlast. A job well done by them. Not only that but they are amazing to their fans. If you ask a question they will reply. I asked about an Xbox one version of the game when the ps4 version was released. They told me they couldn’t talk about it but in the same sentence confirmed it was coming. 6 months later there it was. They are also good about bugs and keeping talks open while they figure out what’s going on. Love them

    I really liked outlast . .. very well done game and an innovative way to play a game. However, I Really have never found ghosts or mist spirits very scary. Once the original game turned into a ghost story I tuned out. Please make it more about people being the scary boogie men.
